Patterns is one of the nicest looking and best feeling sandbox games I've come across in a long time. Just like everyone says, it's very similar to Minecraft in terms of how it feels. The major differences are obvious, most shapes aren't cubes, but other polygons, such as pyramids. There are stress physics, so if you were to put too much stress on a polygon, it would break. There are dynamic physics, so things can fall and react with other objects. Somehow, breaking the base of a tree and watching it fall over is oddly satisfying. I hope that one day the developers include an infinite world generation feature. I'd also love to see more mobs and better crafting. If the developers took what they currently have and added a few Minecraft-esque features, they could possibly be the next big game. As of right now (January 25, 2014) this game feels a little lacking in terms of content. I am also never able to find an online game. But even with that said, I still recommend this game. It's very fun and future updates are sure to make it even better.
